BBC Radio 2 "The Organist Entertains

Help needed

We need help and support in the following ways:

  • Chapter trustees.  You would need to be registered as a trustee of the charity, be able to support the organisation and attend comittee meetings.
  • Woking concert set up and take down.  We would particularly welcome local people who can regularly help with this as none of the committee live in Surrey, let alone Woking!
  • Woking concert raffle.  Organise obtaining good quality prizes, sell tickets at the concerts, help with the draw and cash up at the end of the evening.

If you think you can help or wish to learn more then please contact one of the ATOS trustees who's details you can find here.
